Sacks Morasha pupils are writing regular blog posts on a variety of topics. Read previous entries here. This week’s post is by Adela Hasbani, Year 6:
This week’s newsletter is about organic and non-organic foods. What’s the reason to why most people prefer and eat organic and not any ordinary food? Here’s the explanation why. Organic fruit/veg is produced essentially, as it’s not like any other type of food. Organic fruit/veg grows naturally from the ground and soil [the soils enriched with a lot of nutrition’s which makes the plant healthy]. The way which organic food is made is: The farmers plant their seeds in the ground, they feed it sunshine and water which makes it grow strong, then after a couple of weeks, the farmer sees the food is ready to be eaten and he sells it. Organic fruit/veg is healthier as it involves antioxidants which is extremely healthy and does not contain any of the harmful chemicals which are used in non-organic foods.
Here is one of the chemicals which are stored inside them – hormones. It’s taken care with very specially as the farmers spend lots of time growing it due to it being produced in a healthier and natural way. It’s very popular these days and many people now enjoy eating it!
I hope you have all learnt abour organic goods and their nutrition and minerals, and will start to eat organically.
